DENTON – The first North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry (NCBAM) Field of Makers will take place September 23-24 at Denton FarmPark. Proceeds from this curated artisan event will benefit senior adults served by NCBAM.
The event will feature North Carolina’s finest craftsmen, food vendors, live music and the Country Train! Vendors will showcase pottery, woodworking, jewelry, candles, soaps, plants and more. Live music includes Cornbread Revival (bluegrass), By His Blood quartet, and Debbie Lewis, Ms. Senior North Carolina, 2016.
Gates will open on Friday, Sept. 23, with special shopping hours for senior adults from noon until 3 p.m. General admission is from 3-6 pm Friday and from 9 am–4 pm on Saturday.
Dr. Sandy Gregory, director of NCBAM, explains the need to raise funds: “Lumber costs have skyrocketed and this event will help us get many more wheelchair ramps built for frail seniors in need. We have clients who haven’t left their homes in months and sometimes years, simply because of no safe way to use the steps of their homes.”
Tickets are $7 at the gate and $5 in advance at ncbam.org (until Sept. 21). To learn more, visit ncbam.org or call North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry at 877.506.2226.
